Spyker Cars NV
, the owner of Saab Automobile, plans to tell shareholders in May whether it intends to list the company on the Swedish stock exchange, Chief Executive Officer Victor Muller said. “I think the annual shareholders meeting is an ideal forum to look at what we’re thinking in terms of the dual listing,” Muller said in a telephone interview today. Muller last September told reporters that Spyker may add a listing in Stockholm to its Amsterdam Euronext trading by April 2011. The annual general meeting, where the issue now will be discussed, will be held May 19, he said.
The Dutch super-car maker bought Saab from General Motors Co. for $400 million in cash and preferred shares last February, as Saab was on the brink of shutting down. The Trollhättan-based manufacturer aims to sell 120,000 cars and become profitable by 2012. Muller, who is Saab’s chairman, reiterated that if Spyker enters the Stockholm
exchange, it would also keep its Amsterdam listing for at least a period of time.
